    Lihue Airport
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Two air tours in one! Enjoy views of the Garden Island of Kauai's Menehune Fish Pond, the Eucalyptus Tunnel of Trees, Waita Reservoir (the largest reservoir on Kauai), Captain Cook’s Landing in Waimea Town, the breathtaking Waimea Canyon, the majestic Napali Coastline, Lumahai Beach (were the movie South Pacific was filmed), Hanalei Valley, cascading waterfalls, Kilauea Lighthouse (the largest Frigate bird sanctuary) and miles of beautiful coastline and beaches. Stretching only some 18 miles long and about six miles wide, the arid island is located approximately 17 miles off the west coast of Kaua’i. What makes Ni‘ihau so mystifying is that life here has remained mostly frozen in time. Since it was purchased for $10,000 by the Sinclair family for ranching purposes in 1864, not much has changed. There are no paved roads, no commercial buildings, no hospitals, and few modern-day comforts. A small population of less than 200 live in a tiny village called Pu‘uwai on the westside of the island and still communicate in the native tongue. Hunting and gathering are how sustenance is accrued and monetary work is nearly nonexistent except for a few jobs and artisan trades like selling Ni’ihau Jewelery–treasures made exclusively from shells plucked from the island’s pristine beaches.
